Setting Up CORD Tester Environment
Configure Automation Framework
When the POD/Cord-in-a-Box is installed, cord-tester repo is downloaded on the head node at
Tests can be run directly from the headnode or from a different VM then it can be done using the following command:
git clone https://gerrit.opencord.org/cord-tester
Before executing any tests, proper modules need to be installed which can be done using the following command:
cd /opt/cord/test/cord-tester/src/test/setup sudo ./prerequisites.sh --cord
Most of the tests in cord-tester framework are written in
RobotFramework. Few examples for test execution are shown below
Executing a sample test
cd /opt/cord/test/cord-tester/src/test/robot/ pybot SanityPhyPOD.robot
Executing Control Plane Tests
Each control plane test uses input data in
jsonformat which are present under
Before running control plane tests, a properties file need to be edited as shown below. Update the following attributes accordingly
$ cd /opt/cord/test/cord-tester/src/test/cord-api/Properties $ cat RestApiProperties.py SERVER_IP = 'localhost' SERVER_PORT = '9101' USER = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' PASSWD = ''
To run tests
cd /opt/cord/test/cord-tester/src/test/cord-api/ pybot <testcase.txt>
Executing Functional/Module Tests
There are several functional tests written to test various modules of CORD independently.
Before executing module based tests, following steps need to be performed which will create a
test containerand sets up the environment in the container to run tests.
cd /opt/cord/test/cord-tester/src/test/setup/ sudo ./cord-test.py setup -m manifest-cord.json
Run a single test from a module
sudo ./cord-test.py run -t dhcp:dhcp_exchange.test_dhcp_1request
